Christ took your cup of grief, your cup of the curse, pressed it to his lips, drank it to its dregs – then filled it with His sweet, pardoning, sympathizing love, and gave it back for you to drink, and to drink forever!
— Octavius Winslow
What can the world offer you without Jesus? To be without Jesus is hell most grievous, to be with Jesus is to know the sweetness of heaven. If Jesus is with you, no enemy can harm you. Whoever finds Jesus, finds a rich treasure, and a good above every good. He who loses Jesus loses much indeed, and more than the whole world. Poorest of all is he who lives without Jesus, and richest of all is he who stands in favor with Jesus.
— Thomas a Kempis
